00:00:40 Soundbite by Connie Hedegaard (in ENGLISH) saying that local initiatives are blooming; there is now kind of an instinct feeling that we must stop this use and throw out mentality and, in that sense, the crisis has helped change people's mind a bit, as if now consumption is not the highest expression of happiness, yet still in parts of the world, but it is not a given thing; things are changing in Europe and also in other parts of the world. 00:00:29

00:01:37 Interview of Connie Hedegaard (in ENGLISH) saying that being a politician she would not like to create a society where everything that you have to do is something you are told to do by politicians; there has to be a connection between the overall political target setting, the regulation, and the responsibility you need to take in your individual life; the civil society needs to be involved in this or the transition cannot be made on the scale needed and at the speed needed. 00:00:26

00:02:08 Soundbite by Olafur Eliasson (in ENGLISH) about his own invention of a lamp as art: saying that it is a solar panel and a little LED lamp; the whole idea was to make it so cheap that it could compete with petroleum; the cost was the first rule to follow, it has to be ten times cheaper than what you use for petroleum, which is enough to break into the market; then on top of that it had to do the same thing as all the other works he did. 00:00:21
